Section 2 discusses the following steps in the program development process: preparing others for CBT, designing a CBT program, getting materials and resources, organizing the facilities, and developing management procedures. The third section covers assisting learning, assessing learning, and monitoring a CBT program. Next, the concept of CBT as an evolving phenomenon is discussed briefly.
